Formatted abstract
This Study examines two theories that have been used to explain the causes of inflation in Brazil and their influence on the country's stabilization policies: the monetarist and structuralist theories. Considering that these theories have also affected various stabilization programmes in other Latin American countries, attention is drawn to the experience of Argentina and Chile.

After having presented a description of the package of policies implemented in each country’s stabilization plan, the study appraises the results of the policies. Special attention is given to the Brazilian case.

The study concludes that both monetarist and structuralist policies have failed to stimulate growth and halt inflation at the same time.
